Injury and/or damage to the parotid salivary glandular element during mandible condylar fracture approach is a rare event that leads to accumulation of saliva in the gland, leading to formation of a sialocele. Huge sialocele often seeks drain through the most dependent area through an extraoral wound. A case of parotid fistula (PF) caused by damage to glandular elements during a transparotid approach for a subcondylar fracture reduction is reported. The mechanism of damage and all possible sequels for the condition is being discussed. The method of surgical intervention for this condition is also discussed.
